I would go with whatever anchor is recommended for your boat on the Rocna size calculation guide. As I understand it, and Craig Smith can correct me if I am wrong, but their calculations are fairly conservative to start with. You'd probably be fine with the Rocna 15 (33 lbs.) and probably don't need to go up to a Rocna 20 (44 lbs.) but it really depends on what boat you have. If your boat is a lightweight 31' racer, then it may differ from what a very heavy, full-keel bluewater cruiser would need.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
